Asphyx comes from a time when death metal was re-writing the history of heavy metal. Always on the forefront and always imitated, Asphyx remains one of the legendary death metal innovators whom are just as prolific today as they were in the past. Unlike many other reunions these days, the interest in Asphyx appears bigger now than back in the early 90's when tours with Entombed, Bolt Thrower, Benediction and classic album releases like The Rack and Last One On Earth carved the band moniker deep into the annals of death metal history. And now the Dutch doom/death metal pioneers return in 2016 with the appropriately titled new album Incoming Death.
Vocalist Martin van Drunen on the follow-up 2012's acclaimed Deathhammer: "Four and a half years after the release of Deathhammer we finally managed to finish its long awaited successor... Expect 11 unmerciful battering tracks in the typical Asphyx death/doom style, but also the most varied Asphyx material up to date without losing our rawness, brutality and heaviness. Like Deathhammer, Incoming Death is a phrase that doesn't really exist, but refers to what entrenched soldiers cry out when under severe artillery fire. Thus Incoming Death implies another relentless bombardment of monstrous Asphyx death/doom metal!"
"Recorded on different locations throughout 2016 and once more mixed and mastered by the mighty Dan "The Man" Swanö. Serious ear bleedings guaranteed! It's also our first record also featuring "Husky" on drums, who is now with us for already two and a half years molesting the pig skins with the absolute perfect Asphyx attitude, passion, pride and mayhem. We are very proud of this best Asphyx album ever!"
